Base Camp is a car park between the beginning and end of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, just in front of the Tongariro Holiday Park. Park your car, hire your gear and use our shuttle for your return transport to the crossing.

Base Camp is a secure car park situated on State Highway 47 in front of the Tongariro Holiday Park. Handy as a pick up location if you are staying at the Tongariro Holiday Park.

You can drive to this location in the morning and park your par there safely for the day while you do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Please note there are no toilets here.

This is the cheapest return shuttle. Great for if you need to hire gear such as a jacket, hiking poles or boots (early shuttle only).

We give you a map and information sheet to help you make the most of your day.
